Ethos, Vision and Values

Meppershall Church of England Academy

Love of God, Love of life, Love of learning, Love of each other.

Our Vision

Our vision is for each child to thrive, in an environment of faith, aspiration, creativity, challenge and celebration; and to make their own unique contribution to the school, the community and the wider world. It is based on two texts from the Bible:

“God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God lives in them.”
(1 John 4:16)
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Our Ethos

Our school is a place where:
  • each child learns and grows through a curriculum that offers new opportunities, encourages aspiration and celebrates diversity.
  • each child is celebrated as unique and has opportunities to flourish
  • the wellbeing of each child is prioritised so they grow in confidence of who they are and what they can achieve.

Our Aims

  • to be ambitious for what we want our children to achieve.
